MR. CATHCART WASON (Orkney and Shetland)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board if in any Bill dealing with the registration and speed of motor-cars he will take into consideration the desirability of preventing vehicles being propelled at a high speed on the roads provided for foot passengers and ordinary traffic, and the imposition of a high minimum penalty for breaches of the law; and the imposition of a special licence varying with the rate of speed at which such vehicles can be propelled on the public roads.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) lam preparing a Bill on this subject, and the points referred to in the Question will receive my consideration in connection with it.
